The notion of conservation replicates the ideals that I believe in today and have believed in for most of my life. My family always believed stewardship of the land was something that was engrained in you, something you did because it was what had to be done. My passion for natural lands spans more than 60 years and continues today with active involvement in maintaining conservation lands surrounding our farm and with the Dundas Tree Keepers.
Natural evolution of the land must still be supported by careful thought, planning and love. Our natural landscape is a finite precious resource and each of us has a responsibility to protect it. The Bruce Trail Conservancy has been granted permission to cross our property in perpetuity with the agreement to maintain the trail. We have donated lands through the Foundation in hopes of ensuring others who come after us will have the same opportunity to appreciate, utilize and celebrate our natural environment.
